Arbutus Prestige Selection
The Arbutus Prestige Selection consists of:
- 2 bottles of Red Reserve 2018 - Using the most simple process, we have managed to produce wines that are authentic messengers, clearly conveying the local emotions and terroir. Our ambition was to come to understand the nature of the spots, and we succeeded.
1 jar of Arbutus Jam - In the Serra do Mendro , arbutus jam is highly appreciated for its texture and consistency, as a perfect accompaniment for cheeses and winter desserts. Arbutus jam from Herdade Aldeia de Cima is prepared using the local villagers’ ancestral recipe and uses the whole fruit we don’t remove the seeds so as to ensure greater texture and acidity. With a velvety structure, arbutus jam maintains the original flavour of the ripe fruit, harvested between October and November, revealing a delicate, fresh and intense fruit, and great balance. The jam jar must be kept in a dry and cool environment. After opening, keep in the refrigerator.
- 1 jar of Arbutus Jelly - Jelly has been a way of preserving fruit and obtaining sweet products since antiquity. It is also a very Portuguese sweet, and reminds us of countryside aromas and flavours and precious moments spent at the family table. At the Herdade da Aldeia de Cima estate, every moment is perfect to enjoy some traditional jelly, especially arbutus jelly, with its elegant aroma, that is reminiscent of the forest in the late autumn. This jelly is obtained by cooking the pulp of the arbutus berries harvested in the Serra do Mendro , adding sugar equivalent to its net weight, achieving a thicker consistency due to the fact that arbutus fruit is high in pectin. The jelly jar should be kept in a dry, cool environment at room temperature.
